    I take it from that question that you are entirely ignorant of both the process of evolution and the theory that describes that process. People ARE animals.[/quote]

  3. That's not a good reason to doubt it. Accepting...

    I doubt it. That sounds like something you may have made up out of whole cloth. And it runs counter to my admittedly limited experience; virtually every science denier I know (more than a few) is...

    What does me being a "fargin'[sic] immigrant" have to do with not being for letting everybody in, as zorq and AOC advocate?[/QUOTE]

    Where are you getting this? The first federal immigration law was passed in 1875. It excluded convicted criminals and women thought likely to be prostitutes. Over the next fifty years the feds...

    Let him agonize about it.

    For my part, I've long found that odd. Paul was an inhabitant of the Roman Empire, and the Roman Empire's official state religion Paul considered false.[/QUOTE]

    What the hell do you think happened? The left started winning the political fights over who gets to be the censor and who gets to be the censored. Of course they stopped championing free speech. ...

    If a significant majority of people's representatives don't like it either and consider it the macro-equivalent of yelling fire in a crowded theater, then it should be regulated. If Trump can...

    But that isn't logic. That's tribalism dressed up with sophistry. No, your wealth literally does not constitute that society and that government. That society and that government are people. You...

    I think the percent of wealth you own is irrelevant. What counts is income. Don't reward wasteful consumption and punish thrift! That's just another attempt to drag everyone down to your...
